TALENTED two-year-old Gee Gee Red Prince will face his toughest test this season when he lines up in the $25,000 Arbonne Autumn Plate over 1100 metres at Tattersall’s Park in Hobart on Sunday.

The Stuart Gandy-trained youngster could not have been more impressive in winning at his only two starts and his trainer believes he has the potential to go through the season undefeated.

His main mission is the Sires Produce Stakes over 1400 metres in Launceston next month and while he will be well suited over that trip he should still be the testing material for the opposition on Sunday.

Siorca has won twice and been very competitive at the top level in juvenile features so far this season and he looms as a genuine winning chance along with Gee Gees Top Notch that will have the blinkers applied for the first time.

Naadam was grabbed just on the line by Gee Ge Red Prince ;last start so she should again be competitive and Morgatoche, prepared by Graeme McCulloch and David Keating showed her best in winning at Devonport last Sunday and only needs to bring that form to be hard to beat.
